The Bismarck Lions (4-6, 2-5 in the 5-3A Conference) saw their regular season end with a 41-26 loss on the road against the Centerpoint Knights (4-6, 4-3 in the 5-3A Conference).
But unless the Glen Rose Beavers pull off the upset on the road against the Little Rock Episcopal Wildcats, Bismarck will be going to the playoffs as the No. 5 seed in the 5-3A Conference.
Bismarck held its own against Centerpoint for much of the first half, and the Lions even held a 20-19 lead at one point before the Knightsâ€™ offense came alive in the second half.
The Poyen Indians (6-4, 5-2 in the 5-2A Conference) saw their five-game winning streak snapped at home by way of a 15-13 loss to the England Lions (8-2, 5-2 in the 5-2A Conference), but the Indians were able to earn the No. 2 seed from the conference thanks to a three-way tie-breaker with England and Magnet Cove.
Poyen finished the season with 57 tie-breaker points, putting them ahead of Magnet Cove (third place), which had 55 points and England (fourth place), which had 54 points.
The Magnet Cove Panthers (7-3, 5-2 in the 5-2A Conference) needed some magic Thursday night to avoid having to go on the road for the first round of the Class 2A playoffs.
Thanks to their 33-6 blowout home win over Cutter Morning Star and a narrow win by England at Poyen, the Panthers picked up the No. 3 seed in the 5-2A Conference.

Pro Football Weekend Recap

22 Cleveland (5-3) vs.
17 Tampa Bay (1-7)
It was senior night at Glen Rose on Friday, Oct. 31, but it was the younger crowd that helped lead the Beavers (2-7 overall, 2-4 in the 5-3A Conference) to a 30-7 victory over the Horatio Lions (0-9 overall, 0-6 in the 5-3A Conference).
It was not the Glen Rose offense, nor its defense that got the first score of the game. Facing a fourth down deep in its own territory, the Lions elected to punt, but the snap went through the hands of the punter, forcing him to kick it out of the back of the end zone for a safety and a 2-0 lead for Glen Rose with 7:34 to go in the first quarter.
